OBSQID: obstetrical quality development through integrated use of telematics

The objective of OBSQID was to identify and validate European quality development indicators in perinatal care to allow exchange of data at regional, national and transnational levels through the use of telematic and computerised information systems. A simple software tool has been designed and distributed to participating centres; once the data was made available, it was aggregated, analysed and transferred to a computerised information system based on the Health for All (HFA) database designed by WHO/EURO. OBSQID had a significant impact on perinatal care throughout Europe, linking together health care providers at all levels. It united data collection capabilities at all technological levels, from a paper based tool to sophisticated telematic systems, ensuring communication within and between countries.
